Ben McHugh from Roads ACT announced today that work has started up again on the Calwell park and ride.
“Work on the construction of Calwell’s new park and ride facility has recommenced this week with local contractor Deeble B&C engaged to complete the work,” Mr McHugh said.
“The new facility will be a permanent park and ride car park, which will be available to the public and Calwell Club visitors outside of working hours.
“Completion of this project has been delayed following the liquidation of the previous contractor, who the ACT Government had originally engaged, and the time it has taken to identify a new contractor and evaluate its tender.
